Jet Edge

In a revolutionary approach to proactive coating maintenance, Jet

Edge and Aquablast Corp. U.K. have joined together to pioneer a ^ORTELBOER

Edge 55,000 psi (3,800 bar) electric pumps as a permanent on- board maintenance system on large ocean vessels. In fact, Hellespont

Steamship of Piraeus, Greece, played a for- midable role in the development of the concept and has since retrofitted two state-of-the art 442,000 dwt super tankers with Jet Edge 55-100 pumps.

The pumps were installed directly aft of the main superstruc- ture, within a small steel storage structure. Subsequently, the entire ship was fitted with 60,000 psi hard tubing and high pres- sure hose connection outlets were installed throughout the ship.

Installed to combat corrosion, the Jet Edge system employs its

Gyra Jet LP II rotary lance to one of the connection outlets and then waterblasts the area to white metal before repainting.
